NTSB Prelim: Cessna 421C

Pilot Said He Was Unaware Of The Airplane Blocking The Runway Until He Heard A “Thump” During Landing On January 7, 2024, at 2019 Pacific daylight time, a Cessna 421C, N421TP, sustained substantial damage when it was involved in an accident near Carson City, Nevada. The pilot was not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) data showed that a Piper PA-46, N819RL, landed at Carson City Airport (CXP), Nevada at 1826. The airplane subsequently departed the runway due to icy runway conditions, spun 180° and came to rest adjacent to the active runway with the left wing partially blocking the runway. The pilot contacted Flight Service shortly after that incident to notify them that the runway was partially obstructed.
